Five Movies I Recently Watched But Never Reviewed

Movie

Here it is, my shameful post where I combine multiple reviews into one because I’m so behind with writing reviews that the following movies aren’t even relevant anymore. Like, all of these movies here are pretty much forgotten, and that includes all those thoughts I had about them that I could have mentioned in my reviews. But now though, for the purpose of this post, with that very redundant title, I will try to remember at least a few things…

Fifty Shades Darker (2017)

Movie

“Watch the sequel, you know you want to!! “I don’t think we should continue with this relationship, honestly, I almost didn’t make it out alive the last time!” “No, it will be different this time.” “But last time, I really hated you, like, you made me feel very bad about myself and you were getting off on making me cringe in pain and all that awfulness on screen. We won’t work!” “But I need you to watch me! I have beards…

xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017)

Movie

At no point before, during nor after, did I think anything about the xXx: Return of Xander Cage was a good idea. Me going to see it was simply an act of spontaneous Monday evening plans and nothing else being on screen that I hadn’t seen (or my flatmate hadn’t seen). It was a fluke and every fibre of my being regrets everything about that day and this stupid ass movie.…

The Accountant (2016)

Movie

Imagine my surprise when I walked out of The Accountant and I had only positive things circling my mind!? Because despite the promising trailer, and the premise, I was so certain the movie was going to step into the well known action thriller hole of clichés. Yet, The Accountant kept it fresh right until the end, surprising me with an unconventional final act, that deserves some praise on its own.…

Nocturnal Animals (2016)

Movie

Revenge is a word that has become very violent. We see revenge movies with guns, bombs and the main character just straight up killing everyone. Nocturnal Animals, on the other hand, is more a subtle and a more refined revenge movie, filled with strong emotions around every corner.…

Arrival (2016)

Movie

Let me just sit here and contemplate on how wonderfully insightful a movie about aliens could be. How it could ask difficult questions, how it can educate and teach us about the importance of language and science without making it too futuristic. Let me just sit here for a moment before I manage to put Arrival into words that would perfectly reflect my state of awe.…

4 Kings (2015)

Foreign Movie

After two months of not stepping into a movie theater I broke the curse, and saw two movies on a Sunday at my local theater. Both movies were apart of the Black Nights Movie Festival, and both movies I loved for their emotional impact and powerful story telling. First of those movies was 4 Kings, a German movie about four teenagers and their struggles.…

Manchester By the Sea (2016)

Movie

I want to curl up into a ball and rock myself back and worth until I’m rid of these feelings. I want to hug Casey Affleck, and slap him at the same time, because he managed to break me in a way that I wasn’t expecting to break. I want to not think about the feelings, the hurt, the subtle reveal of heartache, because every time I do, I manage to break myself again.…

Enemy (2013)

Movie

When I went into Enemy, I knew a few things. I knew I was going to enjoy Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance, and I knew that I was going to see a very meaningful movie. I also knew it wouldn’t be easy to understand, and it would have hidden meanings. What I didn’t know, was that this movie is based on José Saramago’s novel, and that it has one of scariest jump scares I have ever encountered.…
